This is what the Lord spoke as I spent time with Him this morning. This was for the whole Body of Christ, as we continue to press through in these days:
"Just thinking about relationships, how do you get to know someone? It's about spending time with them, learning what they like and dislike. Yes, you can read a book about someone, but you must take time to be in their presence to truly know a person.
In the same manner, I want my children to spend time with Me, so that they will experience My love and get to know Me. It is the only way. I didn't shed blood to cover them to continue going about things their way. I did it because I love them and want to spend eternity with them. They need to put aside their traditions and just come away with Me.
Come away with Me! And I will share My heart, I will give you joy and peace surpassing all understanding. Come away with Me, and I will make you My Bride, My everlasting love will overflow in you to have compassion on those who still need to come to know Me."
